Pikes Peak Community Funds

Investing for a Cause

Pikes Peak Community Funds allow you to make a charitable gift into a fund focused on a cause that you care about. You put the money in and then each year, a dedicated committee of people from PPCF make decisions on how to best grant it to nonprofits serving that area. It gives you simplicity and peace of mind knowing that your dollars are going toward the things you most care about and are relevant to the changing needs of the community.
